Incoming Strap

Post by AJC » Sat Sep 15, 2012 11:54 am

Custom made johnson, cut from a 1960's french ammo pouch. Everything from the stitching to the leather to the edges was left to me and i had david appleman at strapevolution.com create my vision. It's for my recently acquired christopher ward malvern. I'll take pics when it arrives.

That looks great. Nice one off. If you don't mind me asking, how bones is that setting you back? His site states roughly $50-$100. Looking at all kinds of straps for the new Orient. Just don't really want to shell out more than the cost of the watch itself.

90 shipped. His prices vary depending on the type of leather used and the extent of customization.

Strap was a pain the ass to get on due to the malvern's lug holes being rather close to the case. But i did it.

NICE. Looks great. Gives the watch a whole new vibe, and that watch had a pretty bitchin' vibe to begin with. Good job.

Actually, i believe the hands are picking up the tone of the strap. The hands are a polished stainless steel (see 2nd pic for accurate representation)

Hi Mort - yep, pressure of work, and not really having much to say! Don't really have the spare cash to keep up with you guys......Blighty is doing pretty damn fine after the success of the Olympic summer. Oh, and making beautiful Christopher Ward watches!
